Whimsy Wall Art Project

Artists interested in creating large scale art walls for The New SLC Airport Redevelopment Program take note. A call for artists to submit work for the Whimsy Walls has been issued by the Salt Lake City Arts Council and the Salt Lake City Dept. of Airports.

The large scale art walls—or Whimsy Walls—are unique vinyl wall wraps that will be created from original artwork and placed throughout the airport’s 24 restrooms. The art is intended to create immersive and engaging experiences for travelers.

Though all subject matter will be considered, artists are encouraged to submit work that reflects the culture, community, landscape and spirit of Salt Lake City. The artwork must be appropriate for a diversity of viewers and may not contain advertising, negative, promotional, religious, sexual or violent imagery. Two-dimensional art styles including abstract, collage, conceptual, figurative, graphic, landscape, print, photography and representational will be accepted.

All artwork submitted must be original and one-of-a-kind. The artist’s commission is $7,000 per piece. Salt Lake City will acquire all intellectual property rights associated with the artwork. The deadline for entries is March 20, 2018.
